Three County Cage Teams Enter Fight For Berth In Sub-State Algona, Bancroft And St. Cecelia's In District Meets tt will take a bit of* doing for Algona's Bulldogs to pet through the district basketball tournament at Humboldt this week.. The same is true for St. Cecelia's Academy in their clash at Forest City and for Bancroft St. John's at Spirit Lake. Algona High's first foe will be Belmond '- Wednesday night and that is enough to make any coach just a little unhappy. The rugged Belmond Bronchos won the North Iowa Conference with a record of 11 wins and one lone defeat. With a percentage of .917 in conference play, this squad will be hard to beat. Belmond Threat > Belmond is ,a well balanced team with each player getting his share of points. Riggs at forward has been showing up well recently, getting 17 points against Britt. Their center, Trager, hooped through 14 the same night. In their sectional final with Clarion, the Broncos lumbered through the Cowboys 50-26. In that game their high scorer was Dick Kriens with 10 followed by Swenson with eight. This is a good indication of team cooperation. At the district meet, Humboldt hits Rockwell City and here again, both are powerhouse outfits, although Humboldt is a slight favorite in,some quarters. Should Algona tromp Belmond, they will have a full evening in the finals, getting either Humboldt or Rockwell City. The first session of the Humboldt district is Tuesday evening, March 7 (tonight.) The final game is Thursday night. St. Cecelia — Corwilh St. Cecelia's Blue Knights have a rough row to hoe, meeting Corwith in the first round at Forest City in the "B" tourney. Corwith has beaten the Algona club twice in the regular season and are out for the third. These two clubs meet Wednesday night at 7:30. The winner of this round will meet either Kanawha or Scarville. Bancroft — Emmetiburg St. John's of Bancroft will have their trial at Spirit Lake when they hit Emmetsbure Wednesday night, March 8. Both teams have had an on and off season. Not much is known about Emmetsburg since they lost to Algona high early in the season. It will be a rough week for Kossuth county cagers and they will have to do some fancy shooting and playing to get into the sub-state. Upper Jfflome* SECTION TWO ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, MARCH 7, 1950 VOL. 85-NO 9 Hank's Diet Does It... Hits 232 In Barry League Hank Geilenfeld apparently took to heart that recent unflattering picture of him printed in the U-D-M. And if the size of the bowling score has anything to do with poundage reduced, he must have reduced quite a little last week, as he chalked up a 232 at Barry's. Other over-200 games were scored by Bud Griggs (222), Ed Wittkopf (205), Al Wittkopf (200), Ted Vera (209), P. Jensen (212), J. Grotte (202), J. Baas (210), D. Kerns (227), D. Winkel (227), L. Winkel (205), W. Jergensen (200), H. Benschoter (203), R. Bierle (207), M. Moxley (201), B. Gade (212). Del Reding (209). Soup Briggs made 593 on three games of 202, 224, and 167. Old Style gained one during •the week to again tie for first place with Barry's in the Blue league. Plantation still has a five game lead in the Purple league, while Burt commands the Green league with an advantage of four wins.

Wittkopf Back From Umpires' Training School "PLAY BALL" will soon echo through baseball fields throughout the country and there is a good chance that the umpire on the other end of that cry will be G. A. "Wick" Wittkopf of Algona. Wick recently returned from a six months school for professional umpires conducted at Corpus Christi, Texas. Wick was one of 19 students offered contracts to officiate at professional ball games this year. "The trend is to have more discipline from players," Wick says, "and we were taught to kick the players out of the game if they use abusive language or get rough." Wick has been umpiring in this area for four years and this year he decided to go into the professional leagues. Wick will know in March where he will be working this summer, although he is holding out for a special territory with good pay . . . Wick and Ted Williams.
